Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Rosie - FOSTER HOME NEEDED! Full of life and full of love!! I am a huge love bug who loves to cuddle up or play! I have lots of energy and like to run around or toss around my toys. I'm learning how to fetch and love going for walks or running around the back yard. I also LOVE big hugs and attention! I would love to have a family to call my own! BREED: American Pitbull Terrier mix COLOR: Tan and White GENDER: Spayed Female BIRTHDATE: November 2013 WEIGHT: 70 pounds GENERAL SOCIALIZATION NOTES: I am definitely not shy at all! I am great with all adults and kids! I love humans! I just need some work on learning how to play with other dogs without upsetting them or them upsetting me. I want to play with them so bad though! If I am in a home with other dogs, it's best to keep me separated from them until I can learn how to play with them better. I do great when I go to Wag n Wash and other pet stores with other dogs near me. I just need help learning how to act with them off the leash. I am also crate trained, but haven't had the opportunity to roam freely in a home to see if I'm house trained yet. DOES THE DOG LIKE OTHER PETS: I like other dogs but have a hard time playing with them and being too rough. My current foster family doesn't think I was ever exposed to other dogs before, so I'm still learning how to behave with other animals so I don't upset them. I'm best on a leash when around other dogs. I also love to chase kitties, so living with them probably wouldn't be the best idea. My most ideal home would be me as the only family pet so I can get all the love and attention for myself! DOES THE DOG LIKE CHILDREN? I love children of all ages! I like to play soccer with my current foster family's ten year old son and also run around the track with him! I'm a people dog, that's for sure! Just keep an eye on the little ones though because I can be a little clumsy and booty bump them! FAVORITE TOYS: I love stuffed toys so I can remove all the stuffing! I also like to chase after balls and sticks in the yard! FOREVER HOME: I am so full of love and I'm looking for a home that will give me lots of love back. I like to live indoors where it's warm since I don't have thick fur. I have lots of energy so I need a home that helps me get plenty of exercise. I, also, need a family who's willing to be patient with me so I can learn how to play with other dogs better and who can help me learn good manners like not jumping up on people. It would be best for me to be the only dog in the house but if anything, the home definitely needs to be a cat free zone. Just look at my face and big ears!! Don't you want to give me a loving home today?

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
